For a long time, the only viable cooling options for most homes were window air conditioners and central air conditioners with accompanying duct systems. While those systems are still fine solutions for many homes, they are no longer your only options.
The HVAC industry has invested a great deal of time and money into creating other types of cooling systems, and some of the most efficient and exciting systems available are ductless air conditioners and heat pumps. The HVAC service technicians at Scott Walker Heating and Air have a deep understanding of ductless mini-splits and know how to get them up and running in your home.
Benefits of Ductless AC
Because they’re based on some of the newest technology available, ductless air conditioners and heat pumps have several key advantages over standard cooling systems. Three key advantages are:
- Efficient Operations: Ductless systems use variable-speed compressor technology to match your home’s cooling needs in real time, which means they can run continuously at peak efficiency. Regular air conditioners need to cycle on and off throughout the day, which inevitably results in some wasted power.
- Direct Cooling: Another way ductless systems save energy is by completely eliminating the need for a duct system. The average central air conditioner loses about 30 percent of its cooling power to leaks in the ducts.
- Space: Ductless systems are quite compact and sit high and nearly out of sight on interior walls. Central air conditioners and air-source heat pumps can be somewhat bulky by comparison.
Because of these advantages, we recommend strongly considering going ductless if you have a condominium or other small home, or if you have an older home without an existing duct system. Ductless systems are also great for new additions to existing homes because there is no need to extend the ducts into the new space. Finally, because they are so efficient, ductless systems are great for any homeowner who is conscious of energy use and the environment.
